"Frugality without creativity is deprivation."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Holiday Makeup

The holidays are special, so forget about matte eyeshadow when you go out! Younger women can experiment with shadows with frost, and mature women will look great going for shadows with a satiny finish. Avoid glitter, though ... that's a little too much!

"I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering; surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy!"

Health and Beauty Tip -- Deep Conditioning

To help your conditioner do its job, wrap a hot towel around conditioned hair for a few minutes before washing it out. The heat gives a deep conditioning effect that you might not get otherwise.

"The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Extra Sunscreen

If you're going out in the sun, don't forget to cover your scalp! Wearing a hat is the obvious solution, but you can also use sunscreen. Find a non-greasy, spray-on formula; lotions and creams will make your hair oily.

There are times not to flirt. When you're sick. When you're with children. When you're on the witness stand.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Help for Sensitive Gums

If your gums are very sensitive, rub a very small amount of aloe vera gel on, and let it sit for a few minutes before washing it off. Aloe vera strengthens gums, and it's especially good to use before using any bleaches or other whiteners on your teeth.

God gave women intuition and femininity. Used properly, the combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I've ever met.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Hot Water

Whenever you can, try to drink a mug of hot (not boiling!) water first thing in the morning. This helps clear out impurities in your body, especially your skin.

Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Applying Foundation

Having trouble with your foundation? You might not be spreading it out enough. When you dot it on your face, do so in as many places as possible -- not just four or five. If at all possible, use a cosmetic brush instead of your fingers -- this spreads out the foundation even more, and you'll end up using less.

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."

Health and Beauty Tip -- The Perfect Lipstick

Have a color you like, but it's a little too bright? Add a tiny bit of concealer, either before or while you apply the lipstick. This will tone it down a bit, and it's much more complementary to the rest of your makeup.

"What it comes down to is that anybody can win with the best horse. What makes you good is if you can take the second- or third-best horse and win."

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eyebrow Care

If you're not in the habit of plucking your eyebrows, be sure to give them extra attention. Use a clean toothbrush to brush eyebrows and keep them looking neat. Even if you do pluck your eyebrows, it's a good idea to do this; the little bit of extra effort can really improve your overall appearance!

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Lock in Moisture

Make sure you use lotion right after you shower -- most moisture is lost withing two hours of bathing, so use a water-based moisturizer as soon as possible afterwards.

"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."

Health and Beauty Tip -- De-Tangle Your Hair

If you wake up with a "rat's nest," try switching to a silk pillowcase. This keeps your hair from staying in one place all night and tangling up.
